GPIOPWM(4) Device Drivers Manual GPIOPWM(4) NAME gpiopwm - support for pulsing GPIO pins in software SYNOPSIS gpiopwm* at gpio? offset ? mask 1 gpiopwm* at gpio? DESCRIPTION The gpiopwm driver allows for pulsing GPIO pins in software using the callout(9) facility. The pulse frequency and duty cycle are specified indirectly by setting an "on" and "off" period, in ticks. Both values are accessible as sysctl(3) variables. SYSCTL VARIABLES The following sysctl(3) variables are used to define the pulsing: hw.gpiopwmN.off Define the "off" period in ticks. hw.gpiopwmN.on Define the "on" period in ticks. Only when both the "on" and the "off" period are set to values higher than zero pulsing will start. To stop the pulsing, set either value to zero. EXAMPLES To pulse a pin on a machine with 100 ticks/second with a frequency of 1Hz and a duty cycle of 20%, the "on" period must be set to 20 and the "off" period must be set to 80. The following example will pulse the error LED of a Soekris net4801 with a frequency of 1 Hz and a duty cycle of 20%: # gpioctl gpio0 20 set pp # gpioctl gpio0 attach gpiopwm 20 1 # sysctl -w hw.gpiopwm0.off=80 # sysctl -w hw.gpiopwm0.on=20 SEE ALSO gpio(4), intro(4), gpioctl(8), sysctl(8) HISTORY The gpiopwm driver first appeared in NetBSD 6.0.
